From 6 to 29 November 2023, the Opéra Bastille once again welcomes the aesthetic universe of Bob Wilson with his production of Puccini’s Turandot. For the occasion, two sopranos were to alternate on stage. While Tamara Wilson will make her Paris Opéra debut before playing Beatrice di Tenda in Bellini’s opera on the same stage in February 2024, the great Sondra Radvanovsky (the headliner at the Callas Gala on 2 December) has withdrawn and will be replaced by Iréne Theorin and Anna Pirozzi. The third soprano continues her love affair with France, as Pirozzi comes for two performances (on 22 and 26 November), before taking on the role of Adriana Lecouvreur (alternating with Anna Netrebko) from 28 January to 7 February 2024. Their partners are Ermonela Jaho and Adriana Gonzalez as Liù and Brian Jagde and Gregory Kunde as Calaf.
